Two new gradients!
The names says all you need to know about the inspiration for this new gradient. Just imagine relaxing by your favorite lake or pond at sunset. You might even imagine your bare feet on the grass and your favorite beverage in your hand. That's where my mind was when I thought up Lakeside. I think it would make a great background for an art quilt but I'm also seeing it as a quilt border with the gold at the center of each side moving toward the blue in the corners. That would make a quilt really glow.
One day recently I got side-tracked down an internet rabbit hole and found myself spending a lot of time looking at photos of the Northern Lights and lamenting that I had never seen them. I'm not sure I'll ever have the opportunity to see the either. I thought that if I can't go see them then I'll just make my own, and I did. I'm not sure if this will work for someone who has seen them in real life but I like the end result and it was fun to play with Aurora.
Gradients Back in Stock
I've got two gradients back in stock for you this week. First, there's Amethyst, which has supplanted all others to become the most popular gradient of the past 12 months. (I do get one right on occasion!) There's also Oasis which meets the need for very bright, cool colors.
Fabric of the Week
With Oasis providing the bright cool colors I wanted to offer a special on some bright, warm colors. Imperial Dragon Gradient is 20% off through Sunday.
